Dragonboat! Not competitive or anything, but regular practices and plenty of pain.

What's a dragonboat? Rowing?

Yep, vikingrowing..

Viking rowing? Was it the Vikings who initiated this rowing? How is it different to plain rowing?

They had dragonheads on their boat...or at least something that looked like it

Oh... Thanks, Michael, for de-mystifying the dragonboat.

Is darts such a popular sport in Netherlands or what?

apologies accepted. darts is popular. we have a few good dartsplayers. van Barneveld did win the worldchampionships a few times. he has been number 1 of the world a few times (don't know if he is now),

Me, it was the opposite. Upto my university, I was not so keen on badminton but during my uni years in Stockholm, I got hooked and played twice or thrice every week. Never in competitions though, just for my pleasure. Now though, hardly get to play in Colombo as very few people seem to like it.

i really was a fanatic (read lunatic). i really went as much as possible. mostly 5 times a week. but then university came with all the party;).

Is yoga a sport?
I do it, to stay in shape, and because of the philosophy that goes with it.

i think it is because it shapes the body. i don't know if you get better stamina/endurance but atleast it gives peace and a clean head.....that the fun of sports in general...

Well, Football (soccer for you 'mericans out there!), played in the Brighton & Hove league last season tho not this. Also Squash. I do lots of mountain biking but not competively.

Darts is far too extreme for me.

That's how pleased we are, that we have a worldchampion ... it doesn't matter that it in a silly game. We are also very good at some other sports nobody else does.
